Description: Drive in any direction from Gainesville, Florida for fifty or a hundred miles and you will see flat, sandy country studded with pine and scrub oak, hundreds of crystal clear, sand bottom lakes, and countless sinkholes which fill with water and serve as the habitat of the Florida alligator. 

The gator, which lives over a half century and has no known diseases or natural enemies, is the symbol of Gator Country. Perfectly adapted to its environment, master of its surroundings and its fate, it is the University of Florida's mascot. 

Gator Country's heart is Gainesville, a blend of the "old" south and the "new" south, of transplanted yankees and unreconstructed rebels, of University of Florida faculty and city merchants, of wives and mothers, college students and cattle ranchers, and some of the best cooks anywhere. 

Gator Country hospitality is a long and proud tradition, and much of its social life centers around food. Dinner parties, luncheons, buffets, brunches, suppers, cookouts; food in infinite variety is a way of life. Few visitors forget a Gator Country meal, and some ask for recipes. Here are some of the best, contributed by some of the best.
